Osprey’s still hanging around Lochter

Normally by this time the Lochter ospreys would have departed on their 3000 mile journey to West Africa. Mum has certainly gone but dad and this years surviving youngster are still hanging around. Tempted to stay perhaps by the mild weather and of course the steady supply of tasty trout.

During the week some members of the human race have been enjoying good sport among the tasty trout.

The blobby boys Doug Mair and Bill Ferries were at it again knocking up scores of eighteen and seventeen respectively using a mix of their favourite blobs and u.v. nymphs  using his special tiny ceramic nymphs Liam Stephen tempted fourteen while Mike Fraser from Newmachar had eight including a lovely 4lb brownie on dwial bachs and buzzers. K. McKinstray kept three for the BBQ and put back another three using nomads and bunny leech’s.

Gavin Laird attempted to match the hatch with wets and sedges and was rewarded when nine nice fish agreed with his choice.

While Billy Ingram up from Stonehaven stuck with traditional wets and bibios and released seven on what he described as ‘a nice days fishing’
